Interupting a remote DBUS method call

I've two processes A and B communicating over the session bus. Process B
publishes a gobject on to the message bus. Process A uses a DbusGProxy
and makes a call, with a timeout, for the methods exposed by process A.
In a certain case, Process B exits on receiving the SIGTERM (which is
supposed to be sent by some other process). So, the question is when the
proxy call on Process B is made from process A, the call doesn't return
immediately eventhough the Process B has exited. It waits until the
timeout and then returns. I need to return from the Proxy call as soon
as the Process B exits.
Please let me know if there is anything specific, that needs to be done
in this case.
